All around the Brimfield Antique Show are piles and piles and piles of things laying around and stacked against walls.  These cork buoys caught my eye because of the rough textures and colors.  There were a dozen or so strings of these hanging form an a-frame set up by one of the venders.w

A box of interesting things sitting on the ground is about the easiest composition one can find.  At the Brimfield Antique Show, you can barely take a dozen steps without seeing a box of something interesting sitting on the ground or on a table.

This image comes from a box of marble balls sitting in a cardboard box.  I don’t know what I would do with them, but they they make for a pretty good image with the cracks, flaws, and discoloration.

Okay, maybe these are not jazz hands, but they sure were semi-creepy.  There was a whole table of these things at the Brimfield Antique Show.

The table o’hands was located in a tent, and getting more of them in the frame was challenging.  The more hands you included, the more of the bright background outside the tent you included.  This made the exposure challenging, not to mention having obnoxious bright spots in your image.

I went ahead centered the image on the two blue hands and included as many background hands as I could.
